Preschool Teachers

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Preschool teachers need experience working with young children. They should understand the needs of this age group and know how to plan activities designed to enhance their cognitive, emotional and social development. Patience is important when working with young children as well as good communication skills. These skills are also essential to work effectively with the parents of these children. Because young children look up to adults and learn through example, it is especially important that as a preschool teacher, you be a good role model. It will also help to have a good sense of humor.
